Ty may not be at his prime, but he didn't fall off the map either. Don't take his numbers as being solely his fault. 

You do realize Robinson is most likely getting 18 to 20m

A week ago people were asking if Irsay putting his banner on the stadium means he was staying.  People are reading into a lot right now.  Time to just let it play out some.     I think his futu

What top FA WR do you see Colts signing?

 

 

 

Obviously they have to become available...but if I had to guess...I would say ARob or Golladay. That's what the Colts need...and I don't see either player back with their current teams.

 

Kenny G is obvious...given the Stafford connection and rapport...and I think he made a business decision to let himself season heal this season to get healthy for FA. My only concern with Golladay is the injuries and the fact that he will already be 28.

 

As for ARob...he will be the same age...but has a much longer track record. I think ARob would jump at the chance to catch passes from Stafford...and play on a team that is a contender.

 

We will see...it is never easy to get a WR via FA. There will be plenty of suitors for each player.

Godwin is a FA too I believe but I bet he stays with the Bucs.

 

If Brady returns for the second year of his deal...and I don't see why he wouldn't...they will have to bring back Godwin to run it back.

Hypothetical question

 

Would you be ok with Brady winning a title this year if it meant he was going to retire or would you rather him lose and return to try again?

I don't really have a dog in the fight. My SB team from my pool was BUF...and now I just have my squares.

 

But if I am being honest...I would prefer that Brady doesn't win. If that means he comes back...so be it. I don't hate Brady like most Colts fans...but seeing him win another SB would be gross. And I think it would take a very questionable game by KC for that to happen. I think KC has a real shot at being the first team in the SB era to three-peat SB titles.

I'm not old enough to have watched Berry, but imo Hilton needs to be put in that same tier. He was dominant with Luck. One of the best tandems we've seen in a long time here.

I watched Raymond Berry. It was a different era but the guy had amazing hands. Hilton is definitely faster but not in Berry's class who always got the job done.

I would draft rookie at 21 then get one of the top WRs above 

A quarterback at 21 may not be any better than Eason, and we don't need two to develop with a veteran team.

I think we're signing a quarterback, one way or the other.

I would gladly take a rookie over any of the garbage FA options out there 

 

Dak is the only solid one and he's gonna way too pricey like 35 to 40m

I meant if they don't get him 

Yeah, if they don't get Stafford, I'm not sold on any others either.  Maybe Winston as a bridge, but I wouldn't be thrilled with it.  

 

If Dalton could be had cheap, maybe.

I'd be fine signing Rosen cheap to compete with Eason.

The next option would be Eason or draft. Maybe if Darnold if he could be had for 3rd

If the Colts get Stafford, I can see CB getting an OT in free agency as well, and then trading down in the draft.

I'd imagine #21 would be gone if Colts got Stafford. Right?

Why. Rivers contract isn't on the books. The Colts have about 60 mill in cap space if I'm not mistaken.

 

Ballard might not get a WR in FA, but it's not like it's impossible to get a guy under the cap.

Stafford will take up 20m and the other WRs are getting 15+m some even possibly 20m like Robinson. I don't want 2/3 spent on 2 players

Ok, but you said "they aren't getting" as if it wasn't possible. It's totally possible. I have no strong feelings about it, but I tend to think paying high dollar for a WR is kind of not the best move.

Its possible but 2 players taking up that much isn't smart when you have 3 others who need extentions soon. You know the 3.

Pittman looks like the real deal.   It depends how Ballard and Reich feel about Campbell.

Hilton jumped back onto Twitter yesterday after a hiatus and was answering questions.  Almost makes me wonder if it’s actually him or not based on some of his answers. But definitely doesn’t sound like someone whose heart is still set on Indy.

Yes I do realize that? Instead of giving ty 10 million you can give that towards Robinson for his deal..

But they could afford to sign you as a scout or front office position. :funny:

 

Well,I doubt they would hire me as a  scout. Most people on this board say I dont know what the hell I am talking bout most of the time...lol

Someone else asked if he was looking into playing for Miami.

 

He replied with “I’m a free agent”.

 

 

Obviously both him and the Colts are going to test the waters and see what the market it in Free Agency. Believe we all knew that already though.

Agreed. Eagles couldn't afford to sign me and I run a 6.0 fourty


The first year the Colts had their Back to Football 5k they were timing people on their forty when you entered the stadium.  I was booking, and I thought I was going to burn it up because it’s a running start.

 

I’m embarrassed to say it was in the 6’s.  I’m an old dude, those decent 40 times are way in the past.  But I remember myself being faster back then every year!

Yeah that answer says it all,  because there is nothing stopping the Colts from signing him to a contract before FA starts.

 

Very telling of the situation.

 

Colts probably want him back bit not at the $10-$15m range TY is probably expecting. Probably $6-$8m range.?

Well TY Hilton has been a great Indianapolis Colt, but everything has to end sometimes.

 

TY just ain't gonna cut it for us anymore, and he was not even among the 40 best WR´s this season in yardage.

 

WE HAD NO WR with more than 762 yards... that's bad if you have Super Bowl aspirations.

 

We need to get some firepower on offence, and TY is not a part of that future... sorry, but he's not.

 

I know Rivers didn't make him look better, but still... he can't get open like he used to.

 

I hope Ballard get a stud WR, that can help Pittman take it to the next level, because we need a true #1 WR.

 

Hilton, thanks for the memories it was fun :)

Looks all but certain that TY will at least test the open market:

 

 

Yeah, writings been on the wall for couple weeks.

 

 

He wants more than Colts want to give him. "gotta work both ways".

 

So Ballard said check the market.

Even though he didn't have his old TY type season, this WR core would be the worst in the league or pretty close to it.

 

Hopefully if he walks it's because they're eyeing someone else.

    • It’s also not true, even with the Colts.  Jim Harbaugh wore number 12 his first year in Indy when he was signed to become the starting QB from the Bears before changing to his normal number 4 the following season because Dean Biasucci already had number 4 when Harbaugh got to Indy and left after 1994 in free agency.
    • Greg Cosell was guest at the Ross Tucker podcast and they talked about the QBs of this coming year's draft. Here are some highlights of what Cosell thought of the different prospects:   Trevor Lawrence: - high level traits prospect - no question he has size, athleticism, armstrength. - He can throw with touch, pace. He can layer his throws, he can throw with precise ball placement  - good elimination and isolation ability, improved from 2019 to 2020 - can move in the pocket but needs improvement in that area - has second reaction ability , very good athlete - can have QB run game with him - only concern - tends to rush himself when there is pressure and he's not a snap thrower, more of a full body thrower so when there are people around him he tends to rush his mechanics and play a little fast.  - thinks Burrow's feel for the game was better last year than Lawrence's feel for the game.    Zach Wilson: - second best QB prospect in this draft  - efficient ball distributor, good feel for the timing of the passing game - has playmaking dimension with his mobility - game built on pocket efficiency and off-schedule movement - those things play well in the league - much to work with when it comes to his traits, his feel, his awareness - can run the structure well and adds playmaking to that  - not at Aaron Rodgers or Mahomes level armstrength. Good arm but not a gun for an arm.  - very good feel for the pass game and saw the field well   Justin Fields: - another high level traits player but there are concerns with him - issues with recognition, with vision, with elimination and isolation from the pocket - a lot of work to be done with him when it comes to him throwing with the needed timing, recognizing early in the down or pre-snap where the ball needs to go based on the coverage.  - can drive the ball with velocity, can make the pace throws  - needs things to be clean and defined to be consistently successful - will struggle with pressure early in his career - in Indiana game - blitzed a lot and he struggled a ton with it.  - a bit slow with what he sees - can that be improved at the NFL level?  - but... guys that can move around - they play early and they make plays off-schedule and he can do that.  - "Fields scares me a little bit" ... "which doesn't mean he won't be a good player - so many variables that go into whether a QB with good traits succeeds or fails - team, scheme, coaching... there are things to be worked through with Fields, and you never know if they will get worked through"   Trey Lance - another high level traits QB - strong live arm, excellent athleticism, twitch and explosiveness to the way he plays both as throwing and moving - gives an NFL team the option for designed run game(not quite Lamar Jackson, but we see the value of having that ability) - can make second reaction plays both throwing and running - has the athletic profile that fits the evolving mold of today's NFL QB - the playmaking dimension will get NFL teams excited - live arm, easy delivery, can drive the football. He's got A LOT of traits.  - issue - level of competition and not playing this year(not his fault but... ) - likes him better than Fields   Mac Jones - highly efficient executor and ball distributor in a really good Alabama offense - main question - how important to you are movement and second reaction ability? In today's NFL you constantly hear that this has become an essential trait.  - because Mac Jones is a bad athlete, almost no ability to play outside structure whatsoever  - very good sense of anticipation, good timing - some pocket movement, not great, but enough that it's not a negative - really good feel for throwing in zone coverage - knows where to go with the ball quickly - a lot of good mental traits, but also virtually no movement and second reaction traits.  - need to understand what he is and what he isn't when you draft him   Kyle Trask - Outstanding size, got physical presence to him, looks the part - ball distributor in a really well schemed Dan Mullen college offense - excellent ball location  - no meaningful second reaction ability , has to play within the structure  - when he gets pressured, and he couldn't do much in those situations - arm good, not great - arm strength limitations, lack of second reaction ability, poise and composure breakdowns - probably a backup in the league.   
    • Jeebus SUPERMAN.  I really don't understand your angle here.     Here is the first definition I came to on the internet of usual.   usual-habitually or typically occurring or done; customary.   You are going to actually disagree that starting QBs that get traded to teams are usally customarily offered their old number?   https://titanswire.usatoday.com/2021/02/24/indianapolis-colts-michael-pittman-carson-wentz-tennessee-titans-a-j-brown/   Here's an article today from a WR vastly more accomplished than Pittman that tends to raise an eyebrow at this too.   Now I don't know if you've been in this thread for a while.  I haven't been on the forum much, and I simply said in about the 4th post of a thread that I thought it was unusual.
